Queen advised to give up favourite drink amid health concerns – 'Seems a trifle unfair'


The 95-year-old monarch has been suggested by doctors to forego her favourite evening drink to ensure her health for the upcoming Jubilee celebrations next summer. While the Queen is in good physical health, missing her favourite drink is just a precaution, sources have said.

Royal fans may not be surprised the monarch shares her favourite tipple with famous spy 007.

Vanity Fair found that advisors to the Queen have advised her to skip her favourite evening martini in order to be in top shape for her busy autumn schedule and ahead of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations next June.

“The Queen has been told to give up her evening drink which is usually a martini,” a family friend told the publication.

“It’s not really a big deal for her, she is not a big drinker but it seems a trifle unfair that at this stage in her life she’s having to give up one of very few pleasures.”

The celebrations will include a four-day bank holiday taking place on June 2 to 5, 2022.

The event is said to cost £15 million and will kick off with Trooping the Colour and a live Platinum Party at the Palace concert which is set to be held at Buckingham Palace.

Oliver Dowden, the Culture Secretary, commented on the upcoming celebrations: “Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee will be a truly historic moment – and one that deserves a celebration to remember.

“We can all look forward to a special, four-day Jubilee weekend, when we will put on a spectacular, once-in-a-generation show that mixes the best of British ceremonial splendour with cutting edge art and technology.

“It will bring the entire nation and the Commonwealth together in a fitting tribute to Her Majesty’s reign.”
